LATEST NEWS » THE VOICE OF PIELLA IS ANNOUNCED!
Sally returns to the Street, but this time it’s West Wallaby Street.
Bristol, 17th March 2008; Sally Lindsay, possibly best known for her character Shelly Unwin in Coronation Street, is to voice ‘Piella Bakewell’ the new character who appears alongside Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) in the new Wallace and Gromit adventure, A Matter of Loaf and Death.
A Matter of Loaf and Death, a 30 minute TV Special commissioned by BBC One, is in production at the Aardman studios in Bristol and will be finished late in 2008.
Nick Park says, "I was driving along the M5 listening to a radio interview and heard this colourful and characterful voice – it was a perfect match for Wallace. I have been searching for a while and keeping my ears peeled since I started writing, wondering who might voice Wallace’s love interest. When I heard Sally on the radio I knew she was the one. As soon as I got home I IMDB’d her."
Wallace and Gromit have a brand new bakery business, 'Top Bun'. Their whole house has been converted into a granary with a ‘Wallace patent-pending’ old-fashioned windmill on the roof. Although business is booming, Gromit finds himself having to run the whole operation single-handedly as Wallace is 'dough-eyed' in love with the beautiful Piella Bakewell, former star of the Bake-O-Lite bread commercials.
But Gromit is not so enamored of Piella - her 'woman’s touch' at 62 West Wallaby Street puts the dog’s nose out of joint. What’s more, a dozen local bakers have disappeared in recent months and Gromit is worried that Wallace may be next. Gromit turns sleuth and the duo soon find themselves drawn into a sinister murder mystery - it’s 'A Matter Of Loaf And Death'.

As one of the biggest Wallace and Gromit fanatics on here, I must say, Nick Park really knows his casting. Sally Lindsay has that dotty, lightheaded personality that's just right for Piaella Bakewell. I sense this will be Wallace and Gromit's grandest day out yet!
